I Just Can't Be Satisfied....

Having just finished the recording portion on a new CD project, and having mixed and mastered until my ears turned blue, I have the following question to those of you who write and record your music: Are you ever satisfied with the end result? I mean, even now, after hours of recording, re-recording, multiple takes of sections of songs (I rarely make the same mistake in the same place, of course - I like to surprise myself) There's always, and I mean ALWAYS something that stands out to my ear as ... just not ... right

My friend, engineer, fellow musician and producer Bob (who is quite happy to be blunt in his assessments) assures me that everything sounds great. I believe him. But still....

I wonder if any artist, in any medium, is completely happy and satisfied with their finished work. Any thoughts?

Hmmm.... Maybe I better re-do that last paragraph.... 

Please enjoy my friend Mike Ryan's song about hard work: LONE STAR FENCING
